Controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (D-GA) on Friday refused to take personal responsibility for her past conspiracy theories, including the absurd idea that the California wildfires were started by a giant laser in space.
Shortly after she was blasted by the Republican Jewish Coalition for anti-Semitism, Greene released a defiant statement.
She directed her statement to “the radical, left-wing Democrat (sic) mob and the fake news media trying to take me out.”
She closely linked herself to Donald Trump, who lost his re-election bid.
“While big PACs and powerful corporations refuse to donate to Republicans and cave to the vicious cancel culture mob, the people have my back,” she argued. “The same 75 million people who voted for President Trump.”
Trump did not win 75 million votes, in reality he only got 74,222,960 votes. Joe Biden beat him with 81,283,361 votes.
Greene is facing an expulsion vote in Congress amid calls for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to strip her of committee assignments.
“If Republicans cower to the mob, and let the Democrats and fake news media take me out, they’re opening the door to come after every single Republican until there’s none left,” she said, apparently assuming the GOP Caucus shares her controversial views.
“But what’s worse is Republicans would be opening the door to let the vicious cancel culture mob take out every one of you,” she argued.
Republicans have been increasingly complaining about “cancel culture” to argue against any accountability for Republicans, even after the deadly insurrection by Trump supporters seeking to overturn the election results.
